The Menomonie Theater Guild is casting “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” the classic Broadway musical which follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant “company man,” the office party, backstabbing coworkers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.

The play is a winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and a Pulitzer Prize.
